Istanbul Agreement.. A new grain ship leaves Ukraine


On Thursday, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that a new grain ship had left the ports of Ukraine, in implementation of the Istanbul Agreement.


The ministry said in a statement that the ship “I Maria”, which carries the flag of Belize, left the Ukrainian port of Chernomorsk loaded with corn.

On July 22, Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations signed the “Document on the Initiative for the Safe Shipping of Grain and Foodstuffs from Ukrainian Ports” during a meeting hosted by Istanbul.

The agreement included securing exports of grain stuck in the Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea (Eastern Europe) to the world.


Many countries in the world are suffering from a grain crisis as a result of the inability of cargo ships to leave Ukrainian ports due to the Russian-Ukrainian war that erupted since February 24.
